I was reading today in the paper about a brass band in Vancouver that plays at funerals.  Think of the scene in the James Bond movie Live and Let Die when the hero was attending a funeral in New Orleans.

Now most people may have an organ playing sombre music in the church or hall during the funeral, but how about entertainment at the gravesite (or tree in my case)  Nothing like a brass band playing When the Saints Come Marching in to uplift the spirit of those in attendance.

I am thinking that for me it would be nice to have the Colonel Bogey March with my kids and grandkids in step, but to quote my late Father-in-law Fred, I will not really care because I will be dead.

Still I understand this can cost up to $1000 so maybe not.
